Jeffco Sheriff: Elementary school principal arrested on child sex assault charges

  1. 1. Jeffco Sheriff: Elementary school principal arrested on child sex assault charges Steven Weigum (Jefferson County Sheriff's Office) Authorities in Jefferson County have arrested the principal of an elementary school on suspicion of incest and sexually assaulting a child. The county sheriff's office says the alleged assaults happened more than 10 years ago and did not involve current or former students. Steven Wiegum, 55, who is the principal of Ute Meadows Elementary School in Ken Caryl, was arrested on suspicion of several counts, including aggravated incest and a pattern of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust. "Although the investigation is in the preliminary stages, there is no indication that any child who previously or currently attends Ute Meadows Elementary are victims," the sheriff's office said. Wiegum is being held without bail at the county jail. Wiegum is due to appear in court Wednesday morning. Court records in the case were not available Tuesday afternoon. The sheriff's office did not release further details. Lisa Pinto, a spokeswoman for Jefferson County Public Schools, said Wiegum was placed on administrative leave Tuesday. http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_27683309/jeffco-sheriff-elementary-school-principal-arrested-ch ild-sex?source=rss
